Jesse stayed silent. He wasn’t that fond of duelling first without a chance to observe his opponent or opponents in battle. It was simply a way he liked to work. Of course he was aware a great fighter was able to adapt on the field of battle - changing their way to give them an upper hand.
Vaguely, Jesse’s eyes shifted to the others. He was silently reading them; seeing what thoughts crossed through their minds by the expressions that flickered on their face.

“Okay then, I’ll choose for you…” Seth said, his eyes scanning the students, he pointed at Arc, “Arc you go first, I would have thought you would be first to volunteer considering your hard working attitude,” Seth grinned, Arc sighed and nodded. He stepped into the centre of the room, the girl facing him on the other side of the room, she drew her scythe and held it in both hands, her stance high but somewhat confident. Arc drew “Bloodfang” holding one in each hand, he lowered his stance, holding the two swords in a very specific arrangement in front of him, he examined his opponent carefully.

Observing the scene before him, Jesse took a moment to take in both of their stances. Very strong and confident. Both of them. Jesse was quite admirable towards the girl’s choice of weapon. Scythes could be tricky things to control. But Arc was a skilled user with his weapons.

“Remember, the academy has healing properties so if you land a strike, it will hurt for a couple of seconds before it heals, to win, you have to either disarm your opponent of BOTH their weapons…” Seth said, looking at Arc, “...or you have to land three consecutive hits to your opponents torso,” Seth explained, then turned to write on the whiteboard, “Arc V Angela” Angela was this girl’s name.
Arc looked at Angela, who looked deeply determined and looks as though she doesn’t give a crap about who she fights

Jesse took a couple of moments before he crossed his arms over his chest. This was to be an intriguing fight and he might be able to learn something from it. He shifted slightly and cocked his head to the right in a small, vague way.

Arc spun his two swords around, as Seth raised his arms and shouted “Fight!”

Almost instantly, Angela leapt to the side of Arc, her scythe coming in a sweeping motion to his torso, he leapt the scythe and turned to Angela who had turned her back on him during the attack, leaving herself open, Arc manoeuvred across to her and hit her in the centre of the back with the hilt of his right handed sword, one hit to her body, two to go. Angela had stumbled forward then turned, she raised the scythe and tried to bring it down quickly onto Arc, who sidestepped to the right and sliced diagonally upwards with his left arm, his sword connected with the shaft of the scythe and Angela wasn’t strong enough to hold it, the scythe spun out of her hands and landed across the room. Arc sheathed his swords and turned to face Seth, who nodded.

“Arc wins the first fight of the day via disarmament!” Seth said, “Who is next to challenge the winner?” Seth asked while Angela strolled over to get her scythe, you could tell she needed practice with it.

It had been a fair enough outcome. Yes, Angela needed to improve but she’d handled the weapon well. It was interesting to know that the confidence in her stance was slightly misleading. Hopefully it would lead her through to improving with it.
Quietly, Jesse gave a soft nod and settled himself. He was never really someone for putting himself all out in duels - he tended to limit himself. The reason for that was unknown to all aside from him and he wasn’t about to share.

Dimitri decided to take the time and have a bit of fun; he’d never duelled against Arc before, simply because they were both dual-fighters. This could be very interesting. He stepped forward, not quite able to hide the sassy smile anymore, and unsheathed his weapons. Karma and Agony, they were called. Both paralyzing with pain if they broke skin. Some small part of him didn’t want to hurt Arc, but then again… it would be nice to beat the champion.
“Shall we?” he asked his roommate quirkily.

“I’m not gonna argue, don’t go easy on me,” Arc grinned, drawing “Bloodfang” once again, he faced Dimitri and took up his low stance again, Seth nodded and then turned to the board again, writing on it now, “Arc V Dimitri.”
Arc again spun his swords around before he started to get the feel for them again, he had rarely fought a dual wielder before so this should be very interesting, although he did know how Dimitri worked. “You may begin, same rules apply,” Seth said

Dimitri knew Arc had an idea of his style. He knew how Arc moved too however. Reaching up, he scratched his nose, eyes trained on Arc. He didn’t want to make the first move.

Arc slowly started to move in a circle to the right, keeping his eyes trained on Dimitri, his swords were longer than Dimitri’s, however Dimitri was good at getting up close to his opponents, Arc frowned, then stopped moving, bringing his right arm slightly backwards in preparation.

D kept his eyes on Arc, though he didn’t turn to keep front to front. He allowed him to circle, D knew where he was and how to get away before any blows were landed. Speed was his strength after all.

Arc lunged, but didn’t strike, instead zoomed across the front of D, now on the other side of the room, he kept his stance, waiting for an opening, if none presented itself, he would have to force an opening from D, which looked like it would be the case.

D humoured Arc and lifted his swords very slightly, his entire body tensing as he sunk down into a half crouch. “Are you coming at me, or shall I just tackle you?” Dimitri asked with a grin.
The thing was, it wasn’t so much that he didn’t want to hurt Arc - though he didn’t - as much as he didn’t want to take the practise seriously. He took practise in the dojo seriously last year, and he was almost sent away because of it. It was mildly surprising to him that Arc didn’t remember it. In fact, Dimitri was quite happy by now with just sheathing his weapons and walking off; he could feel himself slipping into what he privately called ‘the zone’.

“Try and tackle me, that would be a big mistake,” Arc grinned, then lunged at D, both his swords in a cross in front of him so it would not be easy for D to land a hit, he planted a foot just in front of D and leaps into the air, his right hand sword raised and hsi left hand sword ready to defend.
